TitleGeorge B. Peck Dry Goods Company
AbstractThe George B. Peck Dry Goods Company, 1044 Main Street (later known as Peck's) was formerly the Doggett Store Company, owned by John Doggett, who opened his first store in Kansas City in 1866. George B. Peck came west from Detroit in 1889 and bought a block of stock in the Doggett store and became active in its management. He served as director and vice-president before buying out Doggett's interest in 1893. In 1901 the directors voted to change the name to George B. Peck Dry Goods Company. Peck's closed early in 1964 after 77 years' operation.
